I'm so sad that one of my favorite antique stores has closed.
Gary Morell Antiques has been one of my go-to sources for fantastic, unique and one-of-a-kind furnishings and accessories. 17th century wood sculptures, 18th century English and French console tables and chairs, 19th century chandeliers. Most of my jobs have at a piece or two from the store and I always could count on finding something amazing within Gray's treasures.
Owner Gray Morell and his partner Shane Rasmussen ran the La Cienega Quarter antique store until recently when they sold the building and retired. I secretly (and selfishly) hope they pop back up and return to the design industry. Finding such a discerning eye and such a knowledgeable and friendly people to work with in antiques is hard and they will be missed.
Gray & Shane - I wish you tons of happiness in your retired life. You will be missed.
